Have a question about this product?
These shoes are so cute and I always get compliments on them. I was worried at first because they take time to break in, but now they are comfortable and I don’t get blisters. Such a high quality shoe.
Beautiful shoes that require some break in time
The Carmen's are high quality shoes with unique style. These have, unfortunately, required quite a bit of break in time for me. I have a narrow heel that slips a little so I've had to deal with some major blisters. I mainly wear these around the office or when I don't have to do a lot of walking. I'm hoping they break in enough so I can show them off around town someday.
nice quality shoe - very comfy
I love the shoe.
Tons of compliments
I really like these shoes and have received a ton of compliments. They were a little stiff at first but have stretched out.
Very Stylish But Need to Modify for Comfort
Love the style and quality of leather - I get compliments on them all the time. The issue I had was that the seem on the middle strap rubbed my foot and actually made me bleed on both feet from first wear. It's the smallest rough areas of the leather stitching that they don't make smooth but it's enough to rub and cause pain. I had to get sticky shoe pad strips to put on the inside - now they're comfortable.
Fit & Sizing
This style runs true to size. If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up. If you are a whole size, we recommend ordering your usual size.
Stylist tip: It is often best to buy leather shoes that fit snug upon first wear. This will allow them to soften and stretch around your feet.
